Tangshi I. 1. (4)

Zhang Jiuling
Orchid and Orange II

Here, south of the Yangzi, grows a red orangetree.
All winter long its leaves are green,
Not because of a warmer soil,
But because its' nature is used to the cold.
Though it might serve your honourable guests,
You leave it here, far below mountain and river.
Circumstance governs destiny.
Cause and effect are an infinite cycle.
You plant your peach-trees and your plums,
You forget the shade from this other tree.

Bynner 4

循环 circle 不可 shall not 寻 seek. A closed circle is not what we should seek for. Thats the opposite of the above translation, no?

If a true-hearted girl will love only her husband,
In a life as faithfully lived as theirs,

this couplet does not seem accurate to me. Isn't it rather that the chaste girl is buried with her husband and gives up her life to be like the above-mentioned?
